Mobilegeddon - Dawn of a new day blog

I guess at this stage there is not a website owner out there who has not heard that Google is launching a Mobile Friendly algorithm on the 21st of April. A lot of chinese whispers have done the rounds on the topic, and this update – dubbed ‘Mobilegeddon’ – is said to be the biggest in 2 years, larger than the last 2 Google updates, Panda and Penguin[1].

‘Mobilegeddon’ is going to drastically affect how search results are presented on mobile devices, which will then have a similar affect on how users browse, shop, and spend their time online on their smartphone.
